Sailesh Rao writes in his new book, Carbon Yoga: The Vegan Metamorphosis that, “[w]e are in the midst of a monumental transformation in human civilization, akin to a metamorphosis. Just as in Nature where the caterpillar gorges excessively before forcibly undergoing a metamorphosis in the chrysalis, we over-consuming humans are…being forcibly transformed within the cocoon of our finite planet into compassionate, life-affirming butterflies. Vegan life-affirming butterflies.”
Carbon Yoga is the second book in a series that began with Carbon Dharma: The Occupation of Butterflies. Rao is also founder and CEO of the environmental NGO Climate Healers and he co-produced the documentary “Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret.” He tells Worldview why he believes Yoga veganism will save the planet and humankind.
